    BS! It was what he stated before he had a defense lawyer.
    Nor does he have to prove it was an accidental discharge.

    The burden of "proof" is always on the Prosecutor. Even in an affirmative defense case.

    But how many have you killed?
    You know so much about the dynamics of gun killing you must have experience. How many?

    So it will depend on how things are argued in court.


    Most likely it will be argued that she startled him in some fashion causing him to reflexively pull the trigger. Which is an accidental discharge.
    .
    Wrong. That's reflexive murder.
    Why do you want a murderer to go free?

    You are engaged in exaggeration.

    As I have told you previously. You know not of what you speak.
    In other words; That is not what happened.

    Just because you're standing on my porch yelling at me doesn't give you the right to shoot me dead because, "I was afraid she was going to force her way into my home." Shut and Lock The Damned Door.

    Years ago, I asked a cop if I could shoot someone on my front porch if he scared me. The cop answered something like, "Well, yeah. But you'd better drag him part-way in the house."

    Fingerprints on the door handle, broken glass, more than one person, all of that would enter in . . . but showing up at one's front door with a gun in one's hand shows a certain premeditation that makes me nervous. And if you had time to run and get it? You had time to Shut and Lock The Damned Door.
    Kicking a door in is no big sweat.

    Nevertheless the jury would have to buy the "accidental discharge "story in order to acquit on the murder charge.
    ...ain't gonna happen.
